A little while ago I discovered this salad from So Cee and it’s too delicious not to share.
First a bit about Carmen, the girl behind the blog. Carmen is an inspiring girl with a big dose of creativity. She’s everything in one, from model to lifestyle coach. Her blog So Cee is not only about food but fashion and lifestyle are also important items. Carmen wants to inspire people and give them inner strength. Her vision on life is that whatever happens, embrace it like a present and make it your own strength. I asked Carmen if I could share her delicious beetroot salad on my blog and she was more than happy.
This recipe proves that you don’t need many ingredients for a good salad. The combination of all the raw vegetables with a fresh ginger-lime dressing is gorgeous. Beets are great for your health as they’re bursting of vitamins and minerals. Furthermore, they’re a source of iron and protect the body from illness. Red cabbage has medicinal effects, is full of antioxidants and provides resistance to diseases. The ginger-lime dressing adds a powerful boost to this salad, very fresh and spicy. So don’t worry about eating too much of this healthy salad, your body will love it.
Ingredients Beetroot Salad
(For one person)
100 grams red cabbage
2 raw beets
1 red bell pepper
1 teaspoon ginger root
1 teaspoon honey or maple syrup
Pinch of salt
First wash all the vegetables. Cut the apple and bell pepper into long thin strips. Peel the skin of the beets and cut them also in thin long strips. Lastly cut the cabbage into smaller pieces. Put all the vegetables together in a bowl and mix them. Lastly cut the lime and squeeze the juice into a small bowl. Add the ginger root and honey. Whisk it all together and add a bit salt to taste. Add the dressing on top of the salad and enjoy!
Note: If you’re not used to ginger I advice you to use half a teaspoon ginger root instead of a whole one, otherwise it’s very spicy.
